Storyline

A brutal drive-by shooting of a Croatian woman who works at an abortion clinic sends two homicide detectives out onto the streets of one of the world's most culturally diverse cities. Their first suspect has ties to the pro-life movement. But a sudden turn of events, a fresh trail of clues and a suicide attempt by the victim's Serbian husband lead the detectives into the impenetrable world of Balkan politics and prejudices. As they hunt for the killer, they uncover an ethnic war between Croatians and Serbians amid the urban backdrop of downtown Toronto. Written by Betty Palik

CBC movie destined to be the pilot for a Da Vinci's Inquest wanna-be
9 April 2001 | by ram-30See all my reviews

"Chasing Cain" is a typical who-dun-it ala "Da Vinci's Inquest". The movie, a blatant pilot for a proposed series has little to offer to distinguish it from "D.I."("DaVinci's Inquest"). The show stars two homicide detectives played by Peter Outerbridge and Alberta Watson. Outerbridge is no stranger to TV cop shows having played law agents in both "The Commish" and "Millennium". On "Chasing Cain", Outerbridge plays Polish detective Bob Kozlowski. On the movie, he uses his Slovic knowledge to solve a murder in Toronto that may or may not have European roots in the motif. The history and tension between Croats and Serbs is used to full advantage in this drama. Another plus is the allusion to Cain and Abel in the title. The two bitter brothers in Genesis seem to symbolize the bitterness between the Croats and the Serbs. There's even a, perhaps unintentional, scene at a Serbian dance where someone places a dollar bill on a performer's brow. This represents Cain, who had a price on his head. If there is a series arising from this, I hope that it will continue to use Biblical allusions and ethnic culture in its plots to differentiate it from "D.I". Anyway, on it's own, "Chasing Cain" is an exciting, suspenseful movie and I, like Cain, give it a Nod.
